It was a case of ‘experienced veterans’ to the fore for Kimbolton as they continued their Cambs & Hunts Premier League title challenge yesterday.

That’s how skipper James Biddle described his star contributors in a 126-run success against Ufford Park in Whiting & Partners Division Two.

Martin Moore produced his best figures for three years with a 5-16 return which helped dismiss the visitors for just 65 and close out victory.

Lee Ingram also impressed with the ball, taking 3-17 to follow up a top-scoring innings of 48. Matt Aldwinckle added 39 as Kimbolton reached 191-9.

They remain second in the standings, nine points behind Sawston & Babraham, who eased past Warboys in a top-versus-bottom clash yesterday.
